It was a slow first period at the Wells Fargo Center, something the Philadelphia Flyers were well used to this season.

Naturally, head coach Peter Laviolette called upon his 4th line to get some energy flowing in the building.
Center Zac Rinaldo was more than willing to step up to the task.
After laying a hit on David Steckel against the boards, Rinaldo was hit with a swift crosscheck from the Leafs Mike Brown, taking him off his skates. As he went to get up, he was met with another crosscheck, placing him on his backside. So when Mike Brown asked “You wanna go Rinaldo?”, it seemed like an easy invitation for him to do what he did best. Instead, he flipped the script on the Leafs agitator.

A disturbance in the Force has been corrected. Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has fixed his Star Wars-themed mask, changing the color of Yoda’s lightsaber to green after a mini-outcry erupted around its original orange shade. The reddish color would have implied that Yoda had gone over to the dark side; instead, balance in the universe has been restored. Look at the mask you may...
Tye McGinn of the Philadelphia Flyers got into a fight last week with the Maple Leafs’ Mike Brown and the result was not pretty.

Prior to suffering the shoulder injury, Meszaros was playing surprisingly well over his first...
Yikes. This photo was found on Gongshow Hockey Gear’s Facebook Page and presumably came from Tye McGinn himself. The Philadelphia Flyers rookie fought Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mike Brown on February 25th and clearly got the worst of it. McGinn knocked Brown early during the fight, but once Brown got back up, it was all over for McGinn. His jersey was ripped and his...

The curious case of Danny Briere provides a simple proposal, really.
Does Danny Briere really fit with the Philadelphia Flyers?
The simple, far less cumbersome answer: no.
Easier said than done.

Been a while since the Flyers got to Carnival Sunday having WON the day before.
They almost always lose the day before the Flyers' Wives Fight for Lives Carnival. Almost a given.
Peter Laviolette doesn't believe in historical relevancy but there is such when it comes to the Flyers and their "third" month of the schedule. Usually, that is December and it&...

On Saturday, Zolnierczyk leveled Ottawa Senators...
